Oregano is not an herb but rather a name used to define nearly 40 plants available across the world that respond to the same flavor profile. Greece happens to be where the most praised varieties come from and Mount Taygetus is home to the most popular of all Greek oreganos. Rich in essential oils, pungent and peppery, this is what we call all-purpose oregano here at Daphnis and Chloe.
Oregano is an essential seasoning for all things Mediterranean from pizzas to grilled meat and veggies. A wise old trick says that a pinch of oregano in your legumes can facilitate digestion. Here at Daphnis and Chloe we also love mixing it with coarse salt, black pepper and chili flakes.
This is the glass jar version. Oregano is also available in clear sachets.
